@itemize @bullet
@item
The use of source specials when processing or viewing the document can
now be controlled with the new @code{TeX-source-specials} minor mode
which can be toggled via an entry in the Command menu or the key binding
@kbd{C-c C-t C-s}.  If you have customized the variable
@code{TeX-command-list}, you have to re-initialize it for this to work.
This means to open a customization buffer for the variable by typing
@code{M-x customize-variable RET TeX-command-list RET}, selecting
``Erase Customization'' and do your customization again with the new
default.

@item
The content of the command menu now depends on the mode (plain @TeX{},
@LaTeX{}, @ConTeXt{} etc.).  Any former customization of the variable
@code{TeX-command-list} has to be erased.  Otherwise the command menu
and the customization will not work correctly.

@item
Support for hiding and auto-revealing macros, e.g. footnotes or
citations, and environments in a buffer was added, @ref{Folding}.

@item
You can now control if indentation is done upon typing @key{RET} by
customizing the variable @code{TeX-newline-function}, @ref{Indenting}.

@item
Limited support for @code{doc.sty} and @code{ltxdoc.cls} (@samp{dtx}
files) was added.  The new doc@TeX{} mode provides functionality for
editing documentation parts.  This includes formatting (indenting and
filling), adding and completion of macros and environments while staying
in comments as well as syntax highlighting.  (Please note that the mode
is not finished yet.  For example syntax highlighting does not work yet
in XEmacs.)

@item
For macro completion in doc@TeX{} mode the @AUCTeX{} style files
@file{doc.el}, @file{ltxdoc.el} and @file{ltx-base.el} were included.
The latter provides general support for low-level @LaTeX{} macros and
may be used with @LaTeX{} class and style files as well.  It is
currently not loaded automatically for those files.

@item
Support for @ConTeXt{} with a separate @ConTeXt{} mode is now included.
Macro definitions for completion are available in Dutch and English.

@item
The filling and indentation code was overhauled and is now able to
format commented parts of the source syntactically correct.  Newly
available functionality and customization options are explained in the
manual.

@item
Filling and indentation in XEmacs with preview-latex and activated
previews lead to the insertion of whitespace before multi-line previews.
@AUCTeX{} now contains facilities to prevent this problem.

@item
If @code{TeX-master} is set to @code{t}, @AUCTeX{} will now query for a
master file only when a new file is opened.  Existing files will be left
alone.  The new function @code{TeX-master-file-ask} (bound to @kbd{C-c
_} is provided for adding the variable manually.

@item
Sectioning commands are now shown in a larger font on display devices
which support such fontification.  The variable
@code{font-latex-title-fontity} can be customized to restore the old
appearance, i.e. the usage of a different color instead of a change in
size.

@item
Support for @code{alphanum.sty}, @code{beamer.cls}, @code{booktabs.sty},
@code{captcont.sty}, @code{emp.sty}, @code{paralist.sty},
@code{subfigure.sty} and @code{units.sty}/@code{nicefrac.sty} was added.
Credits go to the authors mentioned in the respective @AUCTeX{} style
files.

@item
Inserting graphics with @kbd{C-c RET \includegraphics RET} was improved.
See the variable @code{LaTeX-includegraphics-options-alist}.
@c FIXME: Document this in the main part of the manual

@item
If @code{LaTeX-default-position} is @code{nil}, don't prompt for
position arguments in Tabular-like environments, see @ref{Tabular-like}.

@item
Completion for available packages when using @kbd{C-c RET \usepackage
RET} was improved on systems using the kpathsea library.

@item
The commenting functionality was fixed.  The separate functions for
commenting and uncommenting were unified in one function for paragraphs
and regions respectively which do both.

@item
Syntax highlighting can be customized to fontify quotes delimited by
either >>German<< or <<French>> quotation marks by changing the variable
@code{font-latex-quotes}.

@item
Certain @TeX{}/@LaTeX{} keywords for functions, references, variables
and warnings will now be fontified specially.  You may add your own
keywords by customizing the variables
@code{font-latex-match-function-keywords},
@code{font-latex-match-reference-keywords},
@code{font-latex-match-variable-keywords} and
@code{font-latex-match-warning-keywords}.

@item
If you include the style files @file{german} or @file{ngerman} in a
document (directly or via the @samp{babel} package), you should now
customize @code{LaTeX-german-open-quote},
@code{LaTeX-german-close-quote} and
@code{LaTeX-german-quote-after-quote} instead of @code{TeX-open-quote},
@code{TeX-close-quote} and @code{TeX-quote-after-quote} if you want to
influence the type of quote insertion.

@item
Upon viewing an output file, the right viewer and command line options
for it are now determined automatically by looking at the extension of
the output file and certain options used in the source file.  The
behavior can be adapted or extended respectively by customizing the
variable @code{TeX-output-view-style}.

@item
You can control whether @code{TeX-insert-macro} (@kbd{C-c RET}) ask for
all optional arguments by customizing the variable
@code{TeX-insert-macro-default-style}, @ref{Completion}.

@item
@code{TeX-run-discard} is now able to completely detach a process that
it started.

@item
The build process was enhanced and is now based on @code{autoconf}
making installing AUC@TeX{} a mostly automatic process.  See
@ref{Installation} and @ref{Installation under MS Windows} for details.
